    looking for a clever name for this

    This is a wall hanging I am making in response to my DD who lives in San Antonio and misses the fall colors we have in Nashville. Every year she asks me to send photos to her, and when I email a photo, the one word response I get it "more!" So I decided to make her a fall wall hanging from some of the leaves and colors I found.
    Any ideas for a name for this?

    First thing that comes to mind is Falling Leaves or Autumn Leaves.

    You have great ideas. I too would miss our four seasons, so I will just stay here.
    Great job.

    You did a great job! They really look like they're falling, and the changing blues in the background are great.

    The first thing I thought of was "responding to gravity". Then, I was thinking about one of Bill Bryson's books, where he explains that the trees expend energy to make these beautiful leaves for us, and the trees really don't benefit from making the colors, so maybe "natural entertainment."

    First thing that popped in my head was the song about "the falling leaves drift by my window - the falling leaves of red and gold" . Been a long time since I've heard it and now I guess I have to google it so I can hear it and get it out of my head. :-) Beautiful wall hanging. Your daughter will love it.

    I can't help you with the name but it sure is going to be pretty when you get done.

    Quilts are like friends - they age with you, yet never lose their warmth. Friendship promotes the good and happiness in each other.

    Beautiful colors and idea. Maybe Nashville's Autumn Beauty.
